Myers- Wilkins Elementary is the first STEM school in Duluth!
Our STEM units integrate science and math concepts into
engineering design challenges which result in technologies.
Each grade will have STEM units through out the year that focus on
different types of engineers.
This is a link to a highlight video of the STEM activities that the kindergartners have been working on at Myers-Wilkins.
STEM Days at Myers-Wilkins
Our first ever STEM Days was a success! The students, teachers, and guests had an amazing time exploring science, technology, engineering and math. Below are a few links to the stories the local media did on STEM Days.

There are two STEM carts for kindergarten through second grade, and two STEM carts for third grade through fifth grade. The STEM carts offer a variety of hands-on activities for students to explore engineering, building, creating and much more as they use their creativity. See the photos above!
Myers-Wilkins has two competition Lego Robotics Teams that meet on Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:30 – 4:00. Each team is made up of 6 students in grades 4 and 5. If your 4th or 5th grade student is interested, please contact Mr. Peter Vang or Mrs. Heilig for more information.
Inventor's Club is a special opportunity for some of our 5th graders in the fall. The students walk through the engineering design process to design an original invention, or improve on an existing invention. These students make a working prototype of their invention, keep an inventor's journal, and create a poster about their work. They display their inventions at an inventor's fair that is held at Myers-Wilkins.
